I'm trying to decide my next breed. Lacey is eight months now and I'll be looking to get another pup when she's about one and a half. I'll be purchasing with hope to show. I was thinking about a Papillon but I just think they are too small and fragile around a young Great Dane.
I'm hoping for a smaller breed, with maybe a bit of coat but nothing that requires frequent grooming. I'm looking for somehow with a bit more drive and energy than a Dane but not a high energy breed. It's got to be sturdier, not fragile. I'm open to a terrier breed but as we have cats it can't be a breed that will have the instinct to chase and harass. I would like a Lab or a Golden but I'd like something smaller, but I'm not against something around that size.
I would really love a Sheltie but I'm not sure about that coat, it's a lot of grooming and with the ticks it's a bit much.
I'm not really sure, I'm just spitballing ideas here but I wondered if anyone has any suggestions.
